The team at Gencon love nothing more than to take our dogs out for some fresh air at the end of a busy day and enjoy all that the British Countryside has on show in Autumn. From leaves subtly turning golden brown to evening sunsets Autumn is a great time to be out and about before the colder Winter weather kicks in. But did you know that Autumn is one of the most important times in the Farming calendar? Its a vital time for cows to mate, thus creating some of the heartwarming scenes dog owners get to see on Spring dogs walks, calves.
Responsible dog owners like our Gencon customers know that’s its vital to keep dogs restrained and under control when in open countryside among livestock. Whilst your out exploring the abundance of fallen leaves and making the most of the dwindling light evenings bear in mind that for farmers out of control dogs pose a very real risk to their livelihoods.
The golden rules of Countryside dog walks are to keep your dog on a lead at all times when around livestock, bear in mind some dogs may be spooked by bulls that are not normally in fields.
Here’s to some happy dog walks, we would love to see some photos of dogs walking in the Autumn leaves in their Gencon dog head collars of course.
